Owner description: GUINNESS STOREHOUSE(R), Ireland's No. 1 visitor attraction is a "must see" on any visit to Dublin. Housed in an old fermentation plant in the heart of St James's Gate Brewery, the now seven-storey visitor experience tells the story of Ireland's iconic drink and beings to life the heritage of this world famous beer. Your journey begins standing at the bottom of the world's largest pint glass, which rises through the building. It is a dramatic story that begins over 250 years ago and ends in Gravity(R) Bar, Dublin's highest bar where you will receive a complimentary pint of GUINNESS(R) while enjoying spectacular views over Dublin.

A really expensive experience for what you get. But everyone was knowledgeable and the exhibits were good to see. If you have non drinkers you will want to give it a miss.

Thanks for passing on your feedback. We feel our entry fee is quite competitively priced and offers great value for money. The admission ticket allows visitors to experience the Tasting Rooms, the Guinness Academy and all of the exhibitions throughout the building. Visitors also have access to all of our restaurants as well as the flagship Guinness Retail Store with its exclusive merchandise. Nonetheless, we appreciate and take on board all customer feedback and hope we can welcome you back to Guinness Storehouse soon.

We have been on many brewery tours, but this place is phenomenal. We were going to spend a few hours and we were there for at least five. We ate at the sit down restaurant inside and the food was really really good-with a great view too. Would do it again.

We went as a family on the Wednesday and it was great! There was no que, the storehouse is laid out really well (we did the self tour) and the free pint at the gravity bar was great! Apparently it gets horribly busy on the weekend so I would recommend going on a weekday. All-in-all it was a great day!

We recently visited the storehouse and were disappointed by the general lack of interaction by the staff. There is a service for overseas visitors to listen to head sets but if English is your first language you have to find your own way around with out the narration.

Thanks for taking the time to contact us. We’re disappointed to hear you didn’t fully enjoy your experience here at Guinness Storehouse. Our aim is to take visitors on an unforgettable and a magical journey deep into the heart of the world-famous Guinness brand and company through videos, installations and interactive elements such as Guinness Academy and the Tasting Rooms. Your admission ticket gives you full access to all features within the Storehouse, as well as a pint of Guinness in Gravity Bar. We do offer guided tours of the visitor experience but to ensure we have one of our experienced guides available, we do require this to be booked in advance. We have Storehouse assistants throughout the building who are on hand to answer any queries that visitors may have. Our Storytellers are also located throughout the building sharing some of their favourite Guinness tales with visitors. Thanks again for the feedback, we really do value it.

I found the quality of the tour very good but I don’t think they talked enough about the Guinness family and all the philanthropic gestures that they have made in Dublin.

I feel like I could make a great pint but I don’t think I know a lot about the Guinness family
